As-Salaam alaikum,
 In ayat 14 of Surat Ali-Imran of the Holy Qur'an (3:14), Allah Ta'ala says:--

    "Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet:
    women and sons, heaped-up hoards of gold and silver; horses
    branded (for blood and excellence); and (wealth of) cattle and
   well-tilled land. Such are the possessions of this world's life;
   but in nearness to Allah is the best of the goals (to return to)."

 Just think of the commercials we see on T.V- they make everything beautiful so as to attract you eyes. That is what Shaytan nd his minions do... to catch your eye with hubb-shahawaat, the love of every sort of base desire. Take the example of the city of Las Vegas, where Shaytan and his  friends have decorated its night clubs with all kinds of attractions, putting men and women in front of you in sexually explicit ways... "Fair in the eyes of men is the love of things they covet."  This ayat refers to loving all kinds of desires, but especially the desire for women. Shaytan and his followers know this. Videos they show on television always feature women, rarely men.

 Again, in this ayat Allah mentioned children, gold and silver and He also mentioned horses. Even today, horses are the most expensive objects of desire, more valuable than diamonds. Today, there are horses sold for millions of dollars. Rich people- particularly the princes and wealthy people of the Gulf- buy these horses and keep them. Why?  It is yet another proof of the continuing relevance of the Holy Qur'an, whose passages are as true as they have ever been.

 We must not pay attention to this distraction, by concentrating on our religious obligations as prescribed by Allah through His Blessed Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.
